Can you light the burners with a match?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No I tried that and it doesn't work

OK so you have no gas? If not can you check the gas supply to the unit was it turned off?

Hmmm ... not sure how to tell if I have gas?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
The gas line is open

OK on the Dacor units there would be nothing that would stop the gas flow to the burners so if you turn any of them on you get no gas flow?
